exactly! Like them pistons!

 

I hope an owner of these earphones can chime in.

 

Will take a look at your music library that you posted here, I have a lot to catch up! :D Dang work keeping me away from music.

Are you referring to the Harman Kardon earphones being inexpensive and if anyone's tried them?
post #23195 of 26434
Yup!!!
post #23196 of 26434
They're Harman Kardon NI headphones and I used to own a set. They're the most solidly built in-ears I've owned. The problem is, they're not very comfortable due to the shape, they have piercing highs and minimal bass with little punch. The worst part was the almost non-existent mids. The cord is quite thick for in-ears but retains memory (I was never able to get the cord from curling/coiling).

For build quality, they'll last a long time. For sound quality, I think they're are much better ways to spend $20.

OK, (...drumroll please...) some Dogwalk Discoveries!!

Kinda punk rock, like the time shifts, haven't listened to the rest of the CD much, can't comment but liked listening to this on the walk (when things get this upbeat, poor Ozzie, my pooch, has to walk much faster)


Lovely acapella..

Fun, ipod listed as "unknown", didn't remember, found on Youtube, like this a lot...


One of those voices you'll either love or hate...I love it, moves me, ymmv,

Speaking of voices you'll either love or hate (you know what side I'm on...)

One of the problems with posting jazz is that I almost never find the studio track I was listening to. If I find the piece at all, it is usually a different live performance, often of questionable sound. So if I use it at all, I generally have to substitute something else by the same artist that has the same/similar effect/sound (I had wanted to post Ben Goldberg How to Do Things with Tears from Subatomic Homesick Blues, found a poor sounding live version, take my word, it's really good!
This wasn't the Randy Weston I heard either, but it should do...



OK, enough, until next dog walk...

But, tell me, do you like them?

I did not. I wanted to, but not much to them but treble. Terrible, non-existent mids, weak bass and sibilant treble . Not a good combo.

I know the new Beck HDTracks download is controversial (gotten my earful from some angry Head-Fi'ers), but, sheesh, track 2, X3->National->JVC 850 playing a few minutes ago. Boy, if this is a bad sounding download, I don't think I could stand how beautiful the better sounding recordings of this are. At any rate, enjoying these in my frist post burn in, got the Sony H3 on the burn in station now, see how they fare (ane the ATH-IM70 up for the station after that, burn, baby, burn!!!!

 

All I know is that I heard the below on Jimmy Fallon, and that's all I need to know that I'll be buying this Beck album. Ever since discovering his Mellow Gold album, which I have absolutely loved over the years, I've been waiting for him to come up with another classic. Based on your impressions, and what I just heard, it's here!

Haven't listened to Beck before...this one got great reviews, so I thought I'd check it out, downloaded it from HDTracks. It's a really beautiful album, great sounding (imo-this is the source of great contention if you go to the Head-Fi home page and go the the HDTracks notice about Bob Dylan Hi Rez downloads being available there. I did purchase Beck at HDTracks, some contend that it was sourced from the cd master, which is Red Book Quality, and not Hi Rez. If you upsample CD quality to higher bit rates, it is still, of course, the same information-you haven't increased the resolution any. Seems someone has posted measurements of this, and these are supposed to have found the Beck CD to not be Hi Rez. I have no way to confirm or deny that it is better, worse, or the same sounding as the LP or MP3 done, not having them available for comparison. Can only tell you I really enjoy listening to the record, as downloaded from HDTracks).
Listening more to the JVC's tonight, heard the HDTracks version of The Band (what a GREAT album, don't know if it was confirmed as REAL HD, but I've never heard Robbie Robertson's guitar as cleanly delineated, great wide stage, JVC's did well by the album. Now listening to the recent album by Vampire Weekend, fun, interesting indie album, recording not as good imo as the Beck and The Band, still enjoying the JVC's, though. Have to do that review for The Audiophile Voice comparing W4 and W40, haven't done head to head, been too busy to get to the review, but, when I do, may throw JVC in as an comparison.
